6:31 pm
good evening. on this friday night. across france across the world. we all watched today as s.w.a.t. teams moved in and in stunning fashion, took out the terrorists in two different directions. tonight, a frightening discovery, inside that paris grocery store, explosives connected to a detonatedetonator. s.w.a.t. teams get in before they went off. a plume of smoke before they surrounded a print shop near charles de gaulle airport. just miles away these images a flash of light there and then this -- the gun fire as s.w.a.t. teams rushed in terrified shoppers running out. three suspects killed and tonight one woman, a suspected terrorist, too, on the run. we have team coverage beginning with abc chief foreign correspondent terry moran in paris.
6:32 pm
>> reporter: that flash outside the kosher grocery store, french television broadcasting the end of this day of terrorism. s.w.a.t. teams rush in. hostages run out. this man cradling a child. we could hear the shots blocks away. lot of automatic gunfire. you can probably hear it. there's another bang. paris on edge. that grocery store where the siege unfolded for hours, just 19 miles away from the small town where the kouachi brothers were staging their last stand. abc's alex mar kuat on the seasons. >> at least one large boom. >> reporter: on the run for two days after their killing spree,
6:33 pm
hiding in the villages around a massive forest. 9:00 a.m. this morning, the brothers heading back towards paris, intercepted at a highway roadblock. taking cover inside a small printing plant. and encountering a salesman but letting him go. "i met one of the terrorists and i shook his hand he said the gun mba saying we don't kill civilians. next a standoff heavily armed police shutting down roads. residents told to shelter in place. terrified teachers trying to calm their students. >> in the school there are about 900 persons. and they say to us to stay in the high school. and to be calm but we can't because we are really scared. >> at nearby charles de gaulle airport, flight paths were rerouted.
6:34 pm
listen "we are the defenders of the prophet," he said. it went on for hours. authorities knowing that an innocent civilian was trapped inside with the brothers. then at 1:00 p.m., word of the second standoff in paris, a man armed with an automatic weapon entering the busy grocery store taking hostages. identified as ameddy coulibaly. he was connected to the kouachi brothers. watching these two standoffs play out in realtime for hours. at 5:00 p.m., this -- explosions gunfire and smoke rising from the printing factory. police said that the shootout began when the brothers burst out of the building with their guns blazing. less than 15 minutes later, the paris standoff ending too.
6:35 pm
s.w.a.t. teams storming into the grocery store, four hostages were killed. adding to the 13 innocents killed already this week. the owner of that store is telling french tv tonight he recognized the gunman. he said that he was in the store last week and so this kosher business was apparently targeted just as customers were stocking up for the sabbath. david. >> terry moran leading us off again tonight. terry thank you. new details this evening about that first scene of terror today, that printing shop school children nearby looking out the windows there. teachers singing nursery rhymes to keep them calm. you can hear the gun fire there and something else tonight, inside a worker hiding under a sink texting with police. the terrorist did not know that he was there. alex
6:36 pm
behind me is the entrance to where that printing business is, this is as close as police will let us get tonight. but one of the most amazing stories of the day is that during this standoff, there was a young employee for that print business who was inside hiding and the attackers never knew he was there. french authorities tells us his name is lilian, 26 years-old, and during those eight hours, he was under a pile of boxes on the second floor, feeding the police information via text message. the two suspects said enough is enough. they came out guns blazing, that's when the police killed him and he was able to come out of hiding. prosecutors said that's when police went into the building they discovered an arsenal of weapons and a rocket-propelled grenade primed and ready to launch. a truly remarkable story, david? as we showed you at the top here three suspects killed
6:37 pm
today. but one still on the run this hour a mystery woman. this evening, new images coming in this evening. abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz on who they're looking for. >> reporter: it is this woman, hayat boumediene -- young radical, armed and dangerous -- who police are urgently searching for tonight. her accomplice, and boyfriend, amedy coulibaly, the hostage taker killed by police in the kosher grocery store. coulibaly and the 26-year-old woman believed to be connected with the gunning down of a female police officer yesterday. the four terrorists, part of an al qaeda cell, not the loan wolves, we have seen in the past, radicalized muslims seeking revenge against the west, views that likely grew more extreme during time some spent in prison. >> you have somebody who is in prison for committing a crime. they're often going to be exposed to other bad individuals. >> reporter: at least one of the
6:38 pm
attackers traveled to yemen for training in 2011 and in that phone call to a french television station this morning, before being killed by police, cherif kouachi said they were financed by anwar awlaki, the american-born al qaeda leader in yemen who was killed by a u.s. drone strike in september 2011. the gunman refused to answer questions about whether they were more accomplices. a nightmare scenario. leaving counterterrorism officials racing to determine if there are more members of the sleeper cell. and the big question tonight -- why weren't these known terrorists being tracked by french officials? >> if you're going to follow one person 4 hours a day, 7 days a week that's a commitment of 20 or 21 agents doing surveillance and you can't do that for more than a hand full of people.
6:39 pm
>> martha raddatz is live with us. you saw al qaeda taking credit for all of this what's the reporting on that. >> in a chilling video n a warning to the french to stop what they call an assault on muslims or they will never be safe. also tonight the french are saying the young woman they're now searching for and the wife of one of the brothers exchanged over 500 telephone calls in the last year but the french apparently not tracking them. >> wow, 500 calls. martha thank you. across the world, there's still concern tonight. other members of a cell. another attack coming? the uk warning they could be next stepping up security tonight. so many asking what about here at home. let's turn to pierre thomas. >> reporter: david, fbi and homeland security officials have just sent out a bulletin to 18,000 police agencies across the country, warning about the threat of home-grown radicals and the need to stay vigilant.
